ILS Medical Committee
ILS Medical Committee Members contributed to an article on Drowning, published on NEJM.
The ILS Medical Committee is concerned that publicity surrounding compression-only CPR may deflect potential rescuers from the true needs of victims of a drowning incident.
The ILS urgently reminds all would-be rescuers that hands-only CPR is not appropriate in cases of drowning.
